March 2020 News

Bungee cords are one of those ubiquitous pieces of boating gear that have use almost anywhere. But they have strength limitations and are quickly compromised in an outdoor environment. MiniShockles™ from Davis Instruments are different: they're bungee cords on steroids.

Standard bungee cords are made up of thin strands of rubber. Over time, individual threads break while plastic-coated hooks rust unseen. Failure of these devices is often unexpected and can be dangerous to people and property alike.

Stronger and safer, MiniShockles feature UV-resistant nylon webbing sewn over marine-grade elastomer. This combination absorbs sudden jolts to keep items secure without damage. Durable 316 stainless steel wire gate snap hooks on either end deliver a safe working load rating of 300 lbs. That's ten times the capacity of most bungee cords.

Davis Instruments MiniShockles are available in 12", 18" and 24" lengths. They cost $14.99, $15.99 and $16.99, respectively.
